Cannabis legalization is growing every day. With legalization growing, a wave of new products, laws, companies, trends, and much more are clashing together all at once.
For example, CBD, short for cannabinol, has become a very popular topic. The news and media are constantly reporting updates surrounding it’s every move.
The reasons for CBD’s popularity are due to it’s medicinal, yet non-intoxicating properties. CBD doesn’t make a user feel “stoned,” like traditional cannabis does. It is also legal in all 50 states due the 2018 Farm Bill.
CBD is great for users who want a natural remedy packed with wellness properties.
I was lucky enough to try out one of these pre-rolls, here’s how my experience went.
I had three pre-rolled joints to choose from before embarking on my journey. Juicy Fruit, Fiona, and Chardonnay. All of them smelled delicious.
I decided to be classy and go with a nice Chardonnay Pre-roll. I was excited because this was my first time smoking a CBD joint.
While traveling in California, I was exposed to the cannabis culture out there and was able to smoke a cannabis joint containing high amounts of THC. I knew the experience would be similar, just without the “high.”
Even though I knew CBD doesn’t get you “stoned.” The look and smell of the joint brought me right back to California when I about to try a THC filled joint.
After I popped open the container the pre-roll comes in, the delectable aroma of Chardonnay filled my room.
I began lighting the CBD joint and took a few small drags to get started. Once the joint was well lit, I took some heavier drags.
The first thing I noticed is how it tasted and smelled just like the THC packed joint.
Since the pre-rolls are somewhat small, I smoked about half of it. Within about five to ten minutes, I felt a nice calming sensation throughout my body.
I went back to work not feeling impaired in any way. After an hour, I noticed the calming sensation began to wear off for me.
So, it has now been a few hours since smoking my first CBD Pre-roll. Overall, my experience was nice and pretty much what I thought it would be. I smoked about half of the joint and felt a nice calming sensation for about an hour. I wasn’t impaired in any way and was able to function while working normally.
This experience was similar to my first CBD Vape Pen experience, except a little harsher on the throat and lungs. The effects were very similar.
I would suggest these CBD pre-rolls to anyone who loves the traditional methods of consuming cannabis. If you are a cannabis enthusiast, then you will feel right at home with these bad boys.
If you do not normally smoke and aren’t a cannabis enthusiast, then I wouldn’t recommend the CBD Pre-rolls for you. I would recommend something more like CBD edibles, oils, or topicals. You will receive the benefits but without the harshness on your lungs that is caused by smoking or vaping.
Furthermore, if you live or work around people who are not comfortable with the smell of smoke or cannabis, these pre-rolls might also not be for you. I smelled like cannabis before and after smoking these, which wasn’t a problem, but it would have been if I needed to attend a professional event or setting.
In my opinion, these CBD Pre-rolls are more for a fun movie night in your home or something of this nature.

The motivation for this write up came from one of the questions I receive regularly from readers. The person asked; “Can I cook with CBD oil?”
At first, I laughed really hard but on second thought, I reasoned that not only is the question a valid one, but there are plenty of others who might be thinking the same. I needed to write about it!
You see CBD oil is quite unlike most oils you must have tried in your cooking experiments. While it is possible to cook with CBD, there are a few rules to follow to achieve the best results and I have outlined them below.
Increasing awareness about CBD’s relatively safe profile has dropped off the long-held stigma on hemp and its products. The growing CBD-based researches and related legal barriers seem a good win for athletes.
Quickly, let’s discuss some benefits of CBD in sports:
CBD contains high-potent properties that help fortify your immunity, leaving your body infection- and stress-resistant. This translates to better functioning of body organs – a great benefit for athletes and non-athletes alike.
Exercises and training before competitions can leave you stressed and, in turn, anxious about your performance on the big day. Thankfully, CBD offers anti-anxiety and anti-stress hormones, which help you manage stress from your workouts.
Before hemp’s recent scientific research breakthrough, the plant had been the mainstay of ancient medicine.
While ancient testimonies were basically anecdotal, modern research has unveiled the individual compounds responsible for the effect cannabis users derive. Among the many compounds, one stands out – namely, CBD.
Research authors and firsthand CBD users support CBD’s ability to boost health and, in turn, improve life. This accounts for the increasing number of daily CBD users.
